I have a sales job in Texas that I have been at for almost 2 year. In the two years I have only been written up once for under performance and that was 12 months ago. Yesterday I was brought into the office and told to sign a performance improvement plan which stated that I must sell "X" amount each week this month or I would be terminated, the first week I failed to meet this goal. I was told that If I didn't sign I would be terminated immediately. I had never been told that my performance was lacking, nor where my sales under the stated monthly requirements in the employee handbook. No other sales people were told to sign this document so I feel that I was unfairly singled out. I also feel that I was coerced into signing this document under duress. If I fail to reach this goal and I am terminated could I seek any legal action against the employer? I feel that they are trying to start a paper trail so when they do fire me they can fight my unemployment claim since I had not been written up before.
